Serie A: Victor Osimhen opens account for the season

by: Evolve


Just three days after grabbing a brace against Leicester City during their Europa League game, Victor Osimhen is on fire again for Napoli.

The Super Eagles’ forward scored his first league goal of the season to help his side secure a 4-0 win over Udinese in their Serie A showdown on Monday night.

Lorenzo Insigne’s chip shot 24 minutes into the game seems to have broke the deadlock for the Luciano Spalletti side.

Osimhen is in red-hot form at the moment.

But after much review, the goal was credited to Victor Osimhen as replays showed the Nigerian got a touch before the ball crossed the goal line.

11 minutes later, Amir Rrahmani scores to double their lead to make sure Napoli was in full control before end of first half.

Napoli continued to dominate to the game in second half with Kalidou Koulibaly getting his name on the score sheet 52 minutes on to make the score line 3-0.

With just 6 minutes left to play, Hirving Lozano gets his name on the score board as well to compound the misery for the Luca Gotti’s side.

Napoli are currently the league leader with 12 points in 4, while Udinese are in 7th position with just 7 points.
